Welten der Romantik, Ostfildern 2015, S. 112, Nr. 35. - Bei dem vorliegenden Holzschnitt handelt es sich um einen von bisher sieben bekannten Abzügen des um 1805 entstandenen Holzschnittes mit dem Selbstporträt von Caspar David Friedrich, welches kurz nach der größeren Version seines Selbstbildnisses von 1803 entstanden sein dürfte (Sumowski 1970, S. 136-138; Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973, Nr. 74). Laut Börsch-Supan ist das frühere Blatt nach einer Vorzeichnung Friedrichs von seinem Bruder Christian(1779-1843) in Holz geschnitten worden und steht möglicherweise in Verbindung mit der Produktion der drei Holzschnitte "Die Frau mit dem Spinnennetz zwischen den kahlen Bäumen (Melancholie, Die Spinne)", "Die Frau mit dem Raben am Abgrund" und "Knabe aufeinem Grab schlafend". Im späten 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhundert fand der Holzschnitt hauptsächlich als Buchschmuck Verwendung. Börsch-Supan geht daher davon aus, dass die drei erwähnten Holzschnitte als Illustrationen für ein nicht publiziertes Buch - vermutlich ein Band mit Gedichten von Caspar David Friedrich - geplant gewesen waren. Der Holzschnitt mit seinem Selbstbildnis könnte als Autorenportrait gedacht gewesen sein. (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 34, Kat. 8) Der vorliegende Holzschnitt von 1805 stellt eine kleinere und vereinfachte Version des früheren Selbstporträts dar und könnte als alternativer Illustrationsentwurf für den Holzschnitt entstanden sein. Offenbar hat Friedrich seinem Bruder mehrere Vorarbeiten zu dem Porträt geliefert, wie es eine Zeichnung in der Hamburger Kunsthalle (Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973,. Nr. 73) belegt, die als Vorzeichnung zu dem Holzschnitt einen abweichenden Entwurf darstellt, jedoch von Christian nicht verwendet wurde. Wahrscheinlich hat Christian Friedrich für das Selbstporträt seines Bruders in zwei Stilen experimentiert und sich dann für die Auflage der feinlinigen Fassung in größerem Format entschieden (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 36). - Das Pommersche Landesmuseum in Greifswald besitzt fünf weitere Abzüge des vorliegenden Holzschnittes, welche im Jahre 1927 nach der Ãœbergabe des Holzstocks gemeinsam mit ?8 Holzschnitten der Familie Friedrich? als Neudrucke angefertigt wurden (Inv. K2/647a-e). Die Blätter und der Druckstock waren danach lange in Vergessenheit geraten, bis sie 1956 von Sigrid Hinz wieder gefunden wurden, jedoch falsch als ?Bildnis des Bruders Heinrich Friedrich, geschnitten von Christian Adolf Friedrich? identifziert wurden (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 36; Sumowksi 1970, S. 136?138; Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973, Nr. 60?62 und Nr. 74). Auch Ursula Meyer veröffentlichte 1963 den Holzschnitt mit dieser Identifizierung (Meyer 1963, Nr. 61 mit Abb. 7). Die Identität des Dargestellten steht jedoch nach einem Vergleich mit dem früheren Selbstporträt Caspar David Friedrichs von 1803 außer Zweifel. Es dürften jedenfalls nur einige wenige frühe Probedrucke von dem Porträt angefertigt worden sein. Aufgrund der Papierqualität des vorliegenden Blattes muss jedoch ein Frühdruck ausgeschlossen werden. Wahrscheinlich ist der Holzschnitt gemeinsam mit den anderen Abzügen 1927 als Neudruck im Greifswalder Museum entstanden.

        Periodi istorici e topografia delle valli di Non e Sole nel Tirolo meridionale di Jacop’Antonio Maffei patrizio tirolese.

      Per Luigi Marchesani stampatore imperial regio, Roveredo. 1805 - Jacopo Antonio de Maffei nacque a Revò il 20 luglio 1745 da Giovanni, dottore in legge, e Maria Khuen. La famiglia paterna, originaria della Valtellina, era insignita di un titolo nobiliare imperiale e nel 1779 fu iscritta nella matricola nobiliare tirolese. Jacopo Antonio compì gli studi ginnasiali a Trento e a Merano per poi passare a Innsbruck, dove nel 1768 conseguì la laurea in filosofia. Nel Fondo Maffei dell’Archivio comunale di Revò si conservano il diploma di laurea, datato 20 agosto 1768, e la tesi Dissertatio de varia canonum collectionum apud Germanos fortuna stampata a Innsbruck l’anno successivo. Maffei continuò gli studi legali all’Università di Vienna, dove per breve tempo fu professore supplente di filosofia, ma l’infermità del padre lo costrinse a rientrare a Revò. Dal matrimonio con Marianna de Wiesenegg di Bolzano nacquero numerosi figli, tra i quali va ricordato Giovanni, che nel 1848 sarà eletto deputato all’Assemblea Costituente di Vienna.\rDopo il suo ritorno in val di Non Jacopo Antonio si dedicò principalmente alla gestione delle vaste proprietà agricole di famiglia, anche se "richiesto dai suoi compatriotti od amici non rifiutavasi di fare il consulente legale", come ricordava Agostino Perini nella Statistica del Trentino. Il suo epistolario documenta che fu in cordiali rapporti con Carlo Antonio Martini, Carlo Antonio Pilati, Andreas Alois Di Pauli, Girolamo Asquini e con il futuro vescovo di Trento Emanuele Maria Thun. La partecipazione del Maffei alla vita intellettuale della regione è inoltre testimoniata dal suo ingresso nell’Accademia Roveretana degli Agiati con il nome di Ermondo, avvenuto il 7 aprile 1768.\rL’aspetto più interessante della figura di Jacopo Antonio de Maffei è la sua passione per l’erudizione. A tale scopo egli radunò a Revò una biblioteca di tutto rispetto, che annoverava tra l’altro un magnifico atlante cinquecentesco e le opere dei maggiori intellettuali italiani del Settecento, da Ludovico Antonio Muratori a Scipione Maffei. La perla della sua raccolta era un incunabolo, reperito a Vienna dopo lunghe ricerche: un’edizione di Strabone stampata a Venezia nel 1494. La biblioteca di Casa Campia, principale residenza dei Maffei di Revò, andò purtroppo dispersa alla fine del XX secolo. Si è invece conservato l’archivio di famiglia, nel quale si trovano tra l’altro quattro volumi di "Stromati", raccolte di testi manoscritti e a stampa di vario argomento.\rAccanto agli studi storici Maffei coltivò un vivo interesse per l’epigrafia antica e moderna: si deve a lui la pubblicazione di numerose iscrizioni romane presenti in val di Non, tra le quali quella di Lucio Scantio Crescente, ritrovata a Revò nel 1789 durante lavori effettuati nella chiesa di Santo Stefano e fatta murare dallo stesso Maffei nel giardino della propria casa (il manufatto è oggi conservato nella chiesa parrocchiale di Revò). Fu anche autore di numerose iscrizioni latine dettate in occasione di avvenimenti storici, come l’erezione del nuovo altare maggiore di Sanzeno (1771), la morte del principe vescovo di Passau Tommaso Thun (1796), la riscossa dei tirolesi sugli invasori francesi a Gargazzone (1796), la consacrazione della nuova curaziale di Tregiovo (1799), il soggiorno dell’arciduca Giovanni a Cles (1802).\rCome scrisse Agostino Perini, "l’amore che aveva per la patria grandissimo lo indusse a studiare la storia del suo paese, e formò una delle sue maggiori e più care occupazioni". Frutto di queste ricerche fu il volume Periodi istorici e topografia delle Valli di Non e Sole nel Tirolo meridionale, pubblicato a Rovereto presso l’editore Marchesani nel 1805 e corredato di una carta geografica di Francesco Manfroni. Si tratta della prima organica trattazione dedicata alla storia delle valli del Noce, improntata al metodo storiografico muratoriano, cui segue una descrizione dei luoghi e delle loro caratteristiche fisiche e climatiche. Jacopo Antonio morì a Revò il 22 aprile dell’anno successivo. La sua opera prin

        Holograph draft of the poem "Ye Mariners of England."

      [Circa 1805], 1805. Some smearing and ink-blots in Campbell's hand; in very good condition.. Single 19 x 24 cm sheet folded to make four pages. 43 lines, unevenly divided into 4 stanzas: "Ye Mariners of England - / That guard our native seas / Whose flag has braved a thousand years / The battle & the breeze . . ." A later draft, with revisions, of the famous naval ode by Scottish poet Thomas Campbell (1777-1844), which sings the praises of the English Navy. It was first composed in 1800 in a moment of patriotic zeal when Campbell was traveling in Europe and heard there was news of pending war with Russia. He sent his completed ode to James Perry of the London Morning Chronicle, with the note: "Alteration of the old ballad 'Ye Gentlemen of England,' composed on the prospect of a Russian war." Campbell's "Ye Mariners of England" was published in the Morning Chronicle, March 18, 1801, but Campbell continued to tinker with the lines, and after Horatio Nelson's death at sea in 1805, he altered two lines in the second stanza to note that the ocean was the grave where glorious Nelson fell. This has been the long-accepted version of the poem. The present draft has three corrections and insertions by Campbell, and the usual published format of four stanzas of ten lines each is expanded here with three additional lines, repeating refrains, such as "As ye sweep through the deep," as if this version was intended for public reading or singing. There are other minor variations from the established text, including the word "tempest" for "winds," "glorious" for mighty, etc.

        [21 autograph letters, signed, to Marie-Félicité Brosset].Saint Petersburg, ca. 1840-1879. 8vo (letters, mostly 21 x 13.5 cm) and folio (list of publications). Letters in French with an occasional (Persian?) word in Arabic script, written in black ink on paper, some with the address on the outside and one with Dorn's (Persian?) red wax seal in Arabic script. With: (2) [Manuscript chronological numbered list of 34 publications by Dorn, 1843-1865].[Saint Petersburg, ca. 1865].

      Signed autograph letters written over nearly 40 years by the German-born orientalist in Saint Petersburg, Bernard Dorn (1805-1881) to (or in one case for) his Paris-born colleague Marie-Félicité Brosset (1802-1880), mostly while Brosset was at the Hermitage Museum and Dorn at the Asiatic Museum, both in Saint Petersburg. The letters revolve around their mutual professional interest in oriental languages, particularly in Georgia (Tiflis is explicitly mentioned), and in numismatics. Dorn and Brosset were nearly the same age, came to Saint Petersburg at nearly the same time, and the present letters show that they also developed a close personal friendship, sometimes referring to their families. Some letters with embossed stamps. Some of the letters were sealed and therefore have small tears where Brosset broke the seals, but all are in good or very good condition. In 3 letters the ink has bled through a bit.

        Femelle de la Perruche à front jaune. No. 35.

      Langlois Paris 1805 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, with strong colour, some minor spots. Dimensions: platemark 330 by 260 (13 by 10.25 inches), sheet 460 by 310 mm. (18 by 12 1/4 inches). From Levaillant's "Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets", which is considered the most comprehensive and complete catalogue on the subject. This magnificent work includes some of the most lively and colorful bird illustrations ever created. They capture not only the defining characteristics of the species, but also the charming personality of the individual bird. This exquisite monograph was written by Francois Levaillant, an adventurer and natural historian, who was one of the first to record sightings of Australian parrots. Barrband's skill was greatly esteemed and his name lent cachet to the sumptious work authored by Levaillant. Barraband's brilliantly colored engravings of exotic birds coupled with Levaillant's precise descriptions represent the height of realistic bird art. Jacques Barraband achieved great artistic notoriety for his work at the Gobelin tapestry works, the Sevres porcelain factory, and the palace of St. Cloud before coming to work for the French naturalist Francois Levaillant in the early years of the nineteenth century. Barraband collaborated with Louis Bouquet and Langlois to create the engravings for this work. The plates were carefully inked "a la poupee" with brilliant colors and pulled from the press. Nuances were then added by hand. In his work, Barraband often shows his subject in profile perched on a short tree branch. No other artist equalled his mastery in the rendering of feathers, in evoking their fragility, stiffness or incredible lightness. He displays a preference for harmonies of blues and greens, and reds and yellows. The evocative power of these realistic and precise bird renderings, that feature all the colors of the rainbow, is striking. Fine Bird Books p.118; Nissen IVB 558; Zimmer p.392.

        A Tour in America in 1798, 1799, and 1800. Exhibiting Sketches of Society and Manners, and a Particular Account of the American System of Agriculture With its Recent Improvements (two volumes)

      London: J. Harding and J. Murray, 1805. 1/2 leather. Very good. Complete Approximately 5.35" x 8". Vol 1 - (viii) introductory pages, (1)-319 text pages, (6) advertising pages. Vol. 2 - (vii) introductory pages, (319)-735 text pages. Contemporary half-leather over marbled boards; later rebacked with gilt lettering. Sound bindings; fiont hinge of first volume cracked. Clean, supple pages. Dampstain to the bottom fore-edge corners of Volume 1 flyleaves. Owner's names and pencil annotations in the fore and end matter of both books. See Sabin 58786 and Howes P96. Parkinson was Lincolnshire farmer, interested in improved methods, who left England in 1798 to work for George Washington as an agriculturist at Mount Vernon and at Orange Hill, near Baltimore and traveled throughout the region including the Eastern Shore. This is primarily an agricultural treatise with additional observations on brewing, clothing, house-rent, firewood, labor, religion, emigration, beggars, hog-shooting, and orchard robbing. Caldwell also includes a chapter of "Proofs of the Advantages that England has over America." The Edinburgh review noted that the book "abounds in curious details [about George Washington], that seem to have been generally overlooked by his biographers." Includes a chapter titled, "Tobacco Culture. Some Remarks on the Slaves, suggest by General Washington's management of his Negroes. Anecdotes of the General. Robberies and Thefts by the Negroes." Rather scarce. As of 2017, one other example in the trade. OCLC shows 11 examples of this and a differently titled edition (both published in 1805), three of which are in the United States. ABPC and the Rare Book Hub show four auction sales in the last 25 years.

        Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes.

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1805. <p>First edition, first issue of the invention of the method of least squares, “the automobile of modern statistical analysis” and the origin of “the most famous priority dispute in the history of statistics” (Stigler). “The great advances in mathematical astronomy made during the early years of the nineteenth century were due in no small part to the development of the method of least squares. The same method is the foundation for the calculus of errors of observation now occupying a place of great importance in the scientific study of social, economic, biological, and psychological problems. Gauss says in his work on the <em>Theory of Motions of the Heavenly Bodies</em> (1809) that he had made use of this principle since 1795 but that it was first published by Legendre. The first statement of the method appeared as an appendix entitled “Sur la méthode des moindres quarrés” in Legendre’s Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes, Paris 1805” (Wolberg, ‘The Method of Least Squares,’ in <em>Designing Quantitative Experiments, </em>2010).</p> <p> “[By] 1800 the principle of combining observational equations had evolved, through work of [Tobias] Mayer and [Pierre-Simon] Laplace, to produce a convenient ad hoc procedure for quite general situations. We have also seen how the idea of starting with a mathematical criterion had led, in work of [Roger] Boscovich and Laplace, to an elegant solution suitable for simple linear relationships involving only two unknowns. The first of these approaches developed through problems in astronomy; the second was (at least in these early years) exclusively employed in connection with attempts to determine the figure of the earth. These two lines came together in the work of a man who, like Laplace, was an excellent mathematician working on problems in both arenas − Adrien Marie Legendre.</p> <p>“Legendre came to deal with empirical problems in astronomy and geodesy at a time when [methods] had been developed separately in the two fields. It was also a time when a half-century's successful use of these methods had seen a change in the view scientists took of them − from Euler’s early belief that combination of observations made under different conditions would be detrimental to the later view of Laplace that such combination was essential to the comparison of theory and experience. Legendre brought a fresh view to these problems; and it was Legendre, and not Laplace, who took the next important step.</p> <p>“Legendre did not hit upon the idea of least squares in his first exposure to observational data. From 1792 on he was associated with the French commission charged with measuring the length of a meridian quadrant (the distance from the equator to the North Pole) through Paris. One of the major projects initiated by the National Convention in the early years after the French Revolution had been the decision in 1792 to change the ancient system of measurement by introducing the metric system as a new order, toppling existing standards of measurement in an action symbolic of the French Revolution itself. The basis of the new system was to be the meter, defined to be 1/10,000,000 of a meridian quadrant. It remained for French science to come up with a new determination of the length of this arc. In keeping with the nationalism that inspired the enterprise, the determination was to be based only on new measurements made on French lands. To this end an arc of nearly 10', extending from Montjouy (near Barcelona) in the south to Dunkirk in the north, was measured in 1795. By 1799 the complex task of reducing the multitude of angular measurements to arc lengths had been completed by J. B. J. Delambre and P. F. A. Mechain … In early 1799, Delambre published an extensive discussion of the theoretical results underlying the reduction of the raw data on this arc. This volume is prefaced by a short memoir by Legendre that is dated 9 Nivose, an VII (30 December 1798) and indicates that Legendre did not have the method of least squares at that time …</p> <p>“The occasion for Legendre’s reconsideration of observational equations, and for the appearance of the method of least squares, was the preparation in 1805 of a memoir on the determination of cometary orbits. The memoir is a scant seventy-one pages (excluding the appendix); and, aside from a few brief remarks at the end of the preface, the method of least squares makes no appearance before page 64. Even this first mention of least squares seems to be an afterthought because, after presenting an arbitrary solution to five linear equations in four unknowns (one that assumed that two equations held exactly and two of the unknowns were zero), Legendre wrote that the resulting errors were of a size “quite tolerable in the theory of comets. But it is possible to reduce them further by seeking the minimum of the sum of the squares of the quantities E', E", E"'” (<em>Nouvelles méthodes</em>, p. 64). He then reworked the solution in line with this principle. It seems plausible that Legendre hit on the method of least squares while his memoir was in the later stages of preparation, a guess that is consistent with the fact that the method is not employed earlier in the memoir, despite several opportunities. It is clear, however, that Legendre immediately realized the method’s potential and that it was not merely applications to the orbits of comets he had in mind. On pages 68 and 69 he explained the method in more detail (with the word minimum making five italicized appearances, an emphasis reflecting his apparent excitement), and the memoir is followed on pages 72-80 by the elegant appendix. The example that concludes the appendix reveals Legendre’s depth of understanding of his method (notwithstanding the lack of a formal probabilistic framework). It also suggests that it was because Legendre saw these problems of the orbits of comets as similar to those he had encountered in geodesy that he was inspired to introduce his principle and was able to abstract it from the particular problem he faced. Indeed, the example he chose to discuss was not just given as an illustration, it was a serious return to what must have been the most expensive set of data in France − the 1795 measurements of the French meridian arc from Montjouy to Dunkirk” (Stigler).</p> <p>The appendix is dated 6 March 1805. “For stark clarity of exposition the presentation is unsurpassed; it must be counted as one of the clearest and most elegant introductions of a new statistical method in the history of statistics. In fact, statisticians in the succeeding century and three-quarters have found so little to improve upon that … the explanation of the method could almost be from an elementary text of the present day” (<em>ibid</em>.). Legendre states the principle of his method of “distributing the errors among the equations” on pp. 72-3: “Of all the principles that can be proposed for this purpose, I think there is none more general, more exact, or easier to apply, than that which we have used in this work; it consists of making the sum of the squares of the errors a minimum. By this method, a kind of equilibrium is established among the errors which, since it prevents the extremes from dominating, is appropriate for revealing the state of the system which most nearly approaches the truth.”</p> <p>“The clarity of the exposition no doubt contributed to the fact that the method met with almost immediate success. Before the year 1805 was over it had appeared in another book, Puissant’s <em>Traite de geodesie</em>; and in August of the following year it was presented to a German audience by von Lindenau in von Zach’s astronomical journal, <em>Monatliche </em><em>Correspondenz</em>. Ten years after Legendre's 1805 appendix, the method of least squares was a standard tool in astronomy and geodesy in France, Italy, and Prussia. By 1825 the same was true in England. The rapid geographic diffusion of the method and its quick acceptance in these two fields, almost to the exclusion of other methods, is a success story that has few parallels in the history of scientific method” (<em>ibid</em>.).</p> <p>An unintended consequence of Legendre’s publication was a protracted priority dispute with Carl Friedrich Gauss, who claimed in 1809 that he had been using the method since 1795. In <em>Theoria motus corporum coelestium</em> (1809, Section 186), “Gauss writes: “Our principle, which we have made use of since the year 1795, has lately been published by <em>Legendre </em>in the work <em>Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes, </em>Paris, 1806, where several other properties of this principle have been explained, which, for the sake of brevity, we here omit.”</p> <p>“The <em>Theoria motus </em>was originally written in German and completed in the autumn of 1806. In July 1806 Gauss had for some weeks at his disposal a copy of Legendre’s book before it was sent to Olbers for reviewing. It was not until 1807 that Gauss finally found a publisher, who, however, required that the manuscript should be translated into Latin. Printing began in 1807 and the book was published in 1809. Gauss had thus ample time to elaborate on the formulation of the relation of his version of the method of least squares to that of Legendre, if he had wished so.</p> <p>“Gauss’s use of the expression “our principle” naturally angered Legendre who expressed his feelings in a letter to Gauss dated May 31, 1809. The original is in the Gauss archives at Gottingen; it contains the following statement:</p> <p>“It was with pleasure that I saw that in the course of your meditations you had hit on the same method which I had called <em>Méthode des moindres quarrés </em>in my memoir on comets. The idea for this method did not call for an effort of genius; however, when I observe how imperfect and full of difficulties were the methods which had been employed previously with the same end in view, especially that of M. La Place, which you are justified in attacking, I confess to you that I do attach some value to this little find. I will therefore not conceal from you, Sir, that I felt some regret to see that in citing my memoir p. 221 you say <em>principium nostrum quojam inde ab anno </em>1795 <em>usi sumus </em>etc. There is no discovery that one cannot claim for oneself by saying that one had found the same thing some years previously; but if one does not supply the evidence by citing the place where one has published it, this assertion becomes pointless and serves only to do a disservice to the true author of the discovery.”</p> <p>“It therefore became important for Gauss to get his claim of having used the method of least squares since 1795 corroborated. He wrote to Olbers in 1809 asking whether Olbers still remembered their discussions in 1803 and 1804 when Gauss had explained the method to him. In 1812 he again wrote to Olbers saying “Perhaps you will find an opportunity sometime, to attest <em>publicly </em>that I already stated the essential ideas to you at our first personal meeting in 1803.” In an 1816 paper Olbers attested that he remembered being told the basic principle in 1803.</p> <p>In 1811 Laplace brought the matter of priority before Gauss, who answered that “I have used the method of least squares since the year 1795 and I find in my papers, that the month of June 1798 is the time when I reconciled it with the principle of the calculus of probabilities.” [In his <em>Théorie analytique des probabilités</em> (1812)] Laplace writes that Legendre was the first to publish the method, but that we owe Gauss the justice to observe that he had the same idea several years before, that he had used it regularly, and that he had communicated it to several astronomers” (Hald, pp. 394-5).</p> <p>“The heat of the dispute never reached that of the Newton − Leibniz controversy, but it reached dramatic levels nonetheless. Legendre appended a semi-anonymous attack on Gauss to the 1820 version of his <em>Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes, </em>and Gauss solicited reluctant testimony from friends that he had told them of the method before 1805. A recent study of this and further evidence suggests that, although Gauss may well have been telling the truth about his prior use of the method, he was unsuccessful in whatever attempts he made to communicate it before 1805. In addition, there is no indication that he saw its great general potential before he learned of Legendre’s work. Legendre’s 1805 appendix, on the other hand, although it fell far short of Gauss's work in development, was a dramatic and clear proclamation of a general method by a man who had no doubt about its importance” (Stigler).</p> <p>The book was reissued in January 1806 with a reset title-page and a 55-page supplement; a second 80-page supplement was issued in August 1820.</p> <p>“Legendre (born 18 September 1752, died 10 January 1833) was a mathematician of great breadth and originality. He was three years Laplace’s junior and succeeded Laplace successively as professor of mathematics at the École Militaire and the École Normale. Legendre’s best-known mathematical work was on elliptic integrals (he pioneered this area forty years before Abel and Jacobi), number theory (he discovered the law of quadratic reciprocity), and geometry (his <em>Éléments de géométrie </em>was among the most successful of such texts of the nineteenth century). In addition, he wrote important memoirs on the theory of gravitational attraction. He was a member of two French commissions, one that in 1787 geodetically joined the observatories at Paris and Greenwich and one that in 1795 measured the meridian arc from Barcelona to Dunkirk, the arc upon which the length of the meter was based. It is at the nexus of these latter works in theoretical and practical astronomy and geodesy that the method of least squares appeared” (Stigler).</p> <p>Hald, <em>A History of Mathematical Ststaistics from 1750 to 1930</em>, 1998; Stigler, <em>A History of Statistics</em>, 1986 (see pp. 12-15, 55-61 & 145-6). 4to (265 x 210), pp [i-iii] iv-viii [1] 2-80, with one engraved plate; some slight marginal spotting, contemporary marginal annotations, a very good, uncut copy in original boards, spine expertly restored.
